English/Spanish Interpreter/Translator/Tutor since 1991

Not only did I always do very well in Social studies in high school and college, but my family tree includes many stories about the topics covered in a typical Social Studies class. For example, on two sides, I have relatives who were in the Revolutionary War, also on two sides I have relatives who were in World War I, World War II, and Korea. I have a relative who was a past VP of the United States.

Academic Writing Specialist and Academic Coach

I have taught social studies for more than two decades using an integrated approach. I have used text books as well as unit studies. I have taught American history and geography, world history and geography, as well as a class titled "History and Geography of the Eastern Hemisphere". I feel that social studies subjects should be taught from the point of view of people, living their lives and how they live them. Too often social studies is taught from the point of view of "this war in such and such a year" and "that rock formation". Social studies is about people and their cultures! I h [more]

Student of Philosophy, Tutor, & Chess Coach

Greetings! I'm Lance; thank you for visiting my page. I study philosophy at Benedictine University. Currently working on my thesis and am set to graduate in May of 2019. My teaching style reflects my primary area of research. Brute memorization accomplishes little genuine understanding. Instead, my approach encourages pupils to think through, question, and process information. This promotes knowledge of the subject. In short, facts are useless without systematization?it's only when they're pr... [more]

All Elementary School and Middle School subjects

I have learned a large amount during these interactions and have engaged in numerous discussions with the students in my classrooms. I always try to read up about the particular topic we will be working on and since I have a fondness for this subject I remember a large number of interesting facts about impo [more]
